How foreign media covered Ayodhya Ram Temple ceremony
The grand inauguration of the construction of the Ram temple, or the 'Bhoomi Pujan' in Ayodhya, is seen as one of the most high-profile events in the recent history of independent India.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid a silver brick as a symbolic beginning to the construction of the temple. Celebrations erupted across the globe with hymn-chanting in famous temples of India and also at the Times Square, in New York, where images of Lord Ram were beamed across billboards.
Along with wall-to-wall coverage of the event by the Indian media, several foreign news organisations have also chipped in to contextualise the grand event for the global audience.
